Hans Ulrich Stoef – CEO, Studio 100 Media GmbH

Company statement: We are one family! This year I have the great pleasure to speak on behalf of two companies since Studio 100 Media and m4e are currently in the process of joining their forces in all of their business activities under the roof of the Studio 100 Group and thereby forming one of the largest European kids and family entertainment companies. This is a huge opportunity not only for both companies, but also for our business partners all over the world, since we can offer an even larger portfolio of own and third party brands. Now two perfect strategic partners have been brought together to meet the expectations of a further challenging and increasing international competition. The new constellation will allow the financing and production of many new projects that both companies already have in their pipelines.

I am looking forward to bringing both companies closer to each other and leading them through this process becoming one strong family. Visit us at one of our booths in the Riviera Hall: m4e – R7.H3 or Studio 100 Media – R7.C15.
